Single Idea 16596

[catalogued under 9. Objects / C. Structure of Objects / 7. Substratum]

Full Idea

A completely bare substratum seems not just incoherent but also unable to carry out the function for which it is intended - to be a substratum.

Gist of Idea

A substratum can't be 'bare', because it has a job to do
